It is imperative to adhere to the torque values specified by the Atego M 18 × 1.5 400
vehicle manufacturers. On steel rims the wheel nuts should Atego M 20 × 1.5 500

always be tightened crosswise. Actros M 22 × 1.5 600

For reasons of operational safety, the use of a torque wrench M 20 × 1.5 370 – 400
is recommended as this ensures the specified torque values M 22 × 1.5 430 – 460
are adhered to exactly. Iveco

Hubs and wheels on all vehicles are coated with primer and
M 20 × 1.5 450 – 500
usually with a top coating to protect them from rust. These M 22 × 1.5 550 – 600
coatings tend to give after the first few miles. Nuts and bolts Volvo
also need time to settle. It is therefore essential that the wheel M 18 × 1.5 375 ± 65

nuts are checked after the first 30 miles and tightened, where M 20 × 1.5 525 ± 75
M 22 × 1.5 670 ± 30
necessary. Regular checks are also important later, because if
